Album BackgroundEdit

Positioned as a successful attempt to further bridge the gap between traditional pop music, the traditional Motown sound and soul, the album included the title track, the Supremes' sixth number-one single, and the Top Ten single "My World is Empty Without You".

Also included are the group's cover versions of pop standards such as "With a Song in My Heart", "Without a Song", "Stranger in Paradise" and "Wonderful! Wonderful!".

Originally, the Supremes recorded an entire album of pop standards called "There's a Place for Us", but it was left unreleased by Motown until 2004.

The album cover for "I Hear a Symphony" was the cover shot intended originally for "There's a Place For Us". When that album was eventually released in 2004, an alternate shot from that photo session was used.

Chart PerformanceEdit

"I Hear a Symphony" peaked at #8 on the Billboard 200 and topped Billboard's R&B Albums chart. According to Motown data, it has sold over 1,900,000 copies.
